UNITED NATIONS, New York (July 28, 1999 – Radio Australia)---A UN Security Council committee has recommended United Nations membership for the Kingdom of Tonga.

Tonga established diplomatic relations with China last year, ending a 26-year link with Taiwan and clearing the way for unopposed endorsement by the Security Council, where China has a veto.

Kiribati and Nauru were approved by the Security Council for UN membership last month and are awaiting formal admission by the General Assembly.
